First, thanks for the response!
It generates even more questions, but at least moves me towards the goal. :)

So I guess it is in 17a, at least from looking at the patch source.

I think that shared partitions and quota would be the ones that
currently would interest me. As I understand, the quota support must be
patched in from the patches at http://www.13thfloor.at/VServer/.
What about shared partitions? Are they compatible with quotas?

Errr... no thanks... :)
I would better choose opensource and help at least with bug reports.

If I use one IP for all, how would I be able to run different web
servers for each user?
So I guess my setup would be as follows:
*) host running Debian/stable,
*) iptables to filter ports / shape traffic,
*) vserver+quota patch,
*) a bunch (20+) of VServers each on different IP,
*) each VServer has limited memory with ulimit, and enabled "sched" flag,
*) each VServer is running Debian with apache+php4, proftpd, sshd,
*) mysqld, postgres running on main server.
Some people could get root accounts on VServers to be able to configure
the webserver / add packages to their needs, others ssh accounts, others
just ftp accounts.
Am I on the right track?
